The Fokker D.VII was designed by Fokker’s prolific designer Reinhold Platz. Germany produced around 3,300 examples of the D.VII in the summer and autumn of 1918. The D.VII quickly proved to be a very formidable aircraft. In fact the armistice ending the war in 1918 specifically required that Germany surrender all it’s D.VII aircraft to the Allies at the conclusion of hostilities.
The D.VII entered service in early May 1918. Allied fighter pilots underestimated the new German fighter because of its squarish and ungainly appearance, but quickly revised their view as the D.VII began to mount up victories.
Flown by German aces such as Erich Lowenhart, Ernest Udet, and Herman Goring, among others, the Fokker D.VII earned a reputation as a top fighter aircraft. It was said that the airplane could make a poor pilot good, and a good pilot an ace.
After the war the D.VII saw service with a number of countries including Belgium, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Finland, the Soviet Union, and the United States as well as many others. The Fokker D.VII was operational with the Swiss Air Force into the early 1930’s.
